We witnessed this pressure indirectly. My son attended school with a boy who was a good but not great athlete. After the 8th grade the family moved to Ohio at the step father's insistence since Ohio was more lenient than New York regarding aging out of sports in high school. He then had his step son repeat 8th grade (red shirt essentially).
The boy played football in suburban Columbus and was evidently an all star as his sister was a friend of my daughter and they kept up with events. The boy gave up football and attended OSU. Not sure as to the true cause but the boy committed suicide his freshman year. I believe without proof that the step father was a partial cause based upon the pressure he put on him.
No police called, I think. I was 10 at the time and we didn't hear the aftermath. That coach never coached again though. We heard rumors that the coach may have served time in the past but it may have only been a rumor.
The coach's son and umpire's son were best friends so that may have been a factor.
I posted this someplace else but can't remember where. In the summer of 1960, I witnessed our little league coach nearly bite the thumb off of the umpire in a practice game over a call that he didn't like. And the umpire was just a volunteer and the father of one of our players.
I really hope that Peters lights it up for the Illini.
Calvin Murphy was one of the 3Ms in his collegiate days and they could all light up the scoreboard. Murphy, Mount, and of course Maravich.
The comment about his skill high pointing the ball brings to mind another OSU WR from Massillon who had some nice catches in 2014.
The Romans also had cement/concrete. The knowledge disappeared with the fall of their empire and although folks knew that the Romans used it, they didn't figure out how until how until the 1850s in Portland, England hence the reason we call it Portland cement.
Wow, GTH, there is actually an Ask Me Anything museum. I didn't know that.
The arena in Verona, Italy is still functioning for performances today although the stone seats are a bit hard. It was built by the Romans over 2000 years ago.
Quoting from Bret's wife: KARMA!!
Amazing that we are now seeing recruits born in 2005 or so. It makes me feel really old.
Thanks for the explanation. I assume a scout QB is not a walk-on but more of a hanger around.
One of the problems that is not being mentioned is the dilution of the field. In 2011 there were only 16 teams in the Women's World Cup. In 2015 it was increased to 24 teams which is the same as this year. The 8 additional teams came from Asia/Australia (2), Africa (1), South America (1), and Europe (4).
In 2011, the largest margin of victory was four goals in two different games. The largest margin for the USA was three goals. The USA lost to Sweden in the group stage and to Japan on PKs in the championship game.
In 2015, there were four games with a goal differential of greater than four including Germany 10-0 over Ivory Coast, Switzerland 10-1 over Ecuador, France 5-0 over Mexico, and Cameroon 6-0 over Ecuador. The USA was in a tough group and thus their games were much tighter.
A team like Ecuador in 2015 and Thailand in 2019 would not have been in the 2011 World Cup. Fundamental problem is FIFA's grab for money when not enough countries support their women's teams to be competitive on an international scale. If they want to avoid routs like this, go back to 16 teams. When Switzerland is beating a team by 9 goals, that team has no business in the WC.
That video is very misleading. I watched the entire game and the video only shows the immediate celebration. It doesn't show stuff like Morgan running to the sideline after her 4th or 5th goal and doing a choreographed dance on the sideline with the bench players. Other goals also had some over the top celebrations late in the game.
When working with TE and WR, who is doing the throwing? Is it coaches, high school QBs who are also camping, or can OSU use their scholarships QBs for this purpose and stay within the rules?
Last time I saw that dude, he was riding a bomb out of a B-52.
Bingo, we have a winner. It's always about the money.
